I have been working as a pet sitter in Scottsdale for about 3 years now. I've cared for everything from dogs of all sizes to cats, birds, bunnies, & horses. I have worked with horses for well over 10 years, am pet CPR certified, & have experience in grooming & boarding shops as well. I know that having experience in all these fields does not make me the best out there, but I feel that I excel when & where it counts. You can be prepared for anything & still be surprised to learn something new every day. I have a Westie-Poodle mix, 3 cats of my own, & a fish tank & when it comes to having someone care for them, I want someone who gets it. By "gets it" I mean, someone with understanding, a love for their own animals, & respect for the way I would do things in my own home. When you decide to invite someone into your home, I understand it is a trusting gesture & often a nervous time. My goal is to make all clients happy customers & to put you at ease so you can focus on your time away. My rates vary from $30-$50 all depending on distance & number & types of animals. I can work with any family & situation. Capital gain for me is not the goal in this career choice, it is however clients who can depend on me for anything, new friends, & above all happy pets.
My family has always had dogs as pets as far as I can remember. We have also had horses, goats, cats, rabbits, birds, reptiles, & fish. I grew up with a love of animals. I grew from a little girl wanting to be a veterinarian to majoring in & working an internship with Game & Fish. I feel the preservation & protection of wildlife & animals has always been my passion. I currently work with horses & am an avid pet sitter.
I do enjoy meeting new clients & their pets before sitting them, but it is not necessary in case of an emergency. I have no preferences or restrictions of any animal as to what I watch & i am also capable of taking in (dogs only) to my own home with no problem.
My vehicle is always 100% reliable in case of an emergency or short term notice of a service needed. I can be reached any time of day, no worries.
I am 100% capable & willing to administer medication if necessary. I have given pills & liquids on a schedule, insulin shots, and most other basic medications. I have also picked up medications from a vet office before if it was necessary.
I am always willing to do any other tasks asked of me including, but certainly not limited to: picking up mail, watering plants indoors and out, moving trash cans, answering phones & taking messages if necessary, light cleaning & organizing, walks, pet clean up of any kind, picking up anything while you are gone, &/or running errands.
When I make daily visits, it is all up to my clients on when & how many times they would like me to visit or stay with their pet. If I am to stay overnight, I would be home as close to the normal schedule kept in the household to keep your pet at ease & as always, I will be there however long as you would like me to be.
